Georgia defeats Oklahoma in classic Rose Bowl in overtime

  • UGA Football Rose Bowl Preview

The Parker play: After having led by 17 points, the Sooners trailed 38-31 in the fourth period.

It was his fourth touchdown of the game and the most important one. Eight yards were gained and the ball punted back to Georgia for a game-tying touchdown drive.

I'll take the less value in this prop bet. Chubb deadpanned of his longtime roommate and backfield mate.

One obvious adjustment Georgia made was to play more often with four down linemen and three linebackers instead of its usual 3-4 alignment.

It was Pruitt who took over Alabama's defense when Smart took the Georgia job. People at least expected Georgia to stop the run, which they had an extremely hard time doing against Rodney Anderson, who put up 201 yards on 26 carries, a majority of that coming in the first half.

But Michel gets an assist, according to his coaches and teammates.

"Nobody in this locker room ever stopped believing", Fromm said. It goes back and forth.

"We got to get back to work".

"We've been together for a long time, so we feed off each other", Chubb said.

Now, for the first time at Oklahoma, Riley will prepare for games without Mayfield. They looked totally lost when Georgia led 38-31. "They were able to steal three points on us. Just keep chopping, '" McGee recounted. "There's a reason we've won three Big 12 titles in a row, and that I've put myself in a good position going forward in the future".

Either way, the award would be displayed in their joint residence, one more shared experience. With 8,114 yards OU also broke the '08 team's single-season record for total offense (7,670). The Bulldogs and Sooners were locked in a war.

And of course, Michel was in the middle of all that.

Having won the game in a 2OT thriller 54-48, Georgia celebrated their National Championship bid on the field with Quavo by their side while confetti fell and the boys held newspapers that read "Later Sooners". "It's not done", Michel said. That's what they say about him, at least.

Pruitt prepares for upcoming UT football season
Pruitt will receive a $234,000 bonus for helping the Tide win their title. "I think he's done a tremendous job", Smart said. The defensive coordinator of Team B spent one recent season as associate head coach and defensive backs coach of Team A.

Michel downplayed his little halftime speech.

"Our return team practiced squib kicks in Athens because we knew [Oklahoma] had done that this year", Georgia special teams coach Shane Beamer said.

Michel now has 1,129 yards rushing this season. Rodney Anderson gashed the Georgia defense for 201 yards and two touchdowns on 26 carries.

OU's 531 yards were the most against Georgia this season.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield has closed as the odds-on favorite to win the Heisman Trophy after Nevada sportsbooks halted betting on the award over the past week. Michel and Chubb both would have been among the best running backs available had they chose to declare for the National Football League draft a year ago.

"Sure, I'll look back at it, and there will be calls that I wish I would have done different", Riley said. "It was cool, it was exciting".

So next week we get the championship game we may not want, but which we deserve. Sony, could I ask you what it was like on that last run? You guys had a really big game running. That's what he said, and that's what it's starting to feel like with these Bulldogs, who seemed to have grabbed destiny and started carrying it under their arm like a football.

"Every time Oklahoma did something, they responded back from it".

"It hasn't sunk in yet", Michel said of playing for the national title.

"I don't know", he said with a grin.

SONY MICHEL: We just wanted to play our style of football. "Whatever we have to do, we've got to finish".

Seibert kicked a 33-yarder and the Bulldogs and Sooners played on, but not for much longer.
